Very nice documentary
26 January 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This series of 12 episodes shows the life on a farm in Wales, in the year 1620. Five experts worked this farm for a full year, covering one month in that year (from September to August) in one episode.

Assisted by experts in various fields like thatching, hedge-making and coal burning, they also explain very clearly how life used to be in that period, which tools people used to have, and they work the farm using the same techniques and the same tools as there used to be.

Although the episodes show perhaps a bit more romantic life than it might have been on a real 1620 farm, I can certainly recommend this series for anyone interested in historical documentaries.
